GOAL! Sounders Score Win Over LA Galaxy

By TIM BOOTH AP
Sports Writer

SEATTLE - Eddie Johnson scored for the second straight game, directing home a header just before halftime, Fredy Montero scored his first goal of the season on a 35-yard strike early in the second half, and the Seattle Sounders finally got the best of Los Angeles with a 2-0 win over the Galaxy on Wednesday night.

Johnson's goal in the 40th minute capped a half of missed chances for Seattle and came off a long cross from Mauro Rosales.

It snapped a long scoreless skid for Seattle at home against the Galaxy and led to the Sounders' first win over Los Angeles in MLS play since 2009.

Montero's goal was a stunning strike from distance in the 48th minute. Given space in the midfield, Montero drive found the opposite upper corner out of the reach of Los Angeles goalkeeper Bill Gaudette.

      Hi, my name is Sam Adams... and I'm a baseball strataholic.  Ever since I was in middle school, I was obsessed with baseball strategy games.  My first foray came with the board game "Strat-o-matic Baseball," before I graduated to the PC universe with "Tony LaRussa Baseball."  I loved constructing a super team of baseball players long before LeBron and Curry were building their super teams in the NBA.
